Antique French Art Deco Carpet, circa 1930.

A remarkable blend of abstract geometry and pictorial suggestion come together on this stunning classic French Art Deco carpet. Squares, zig-zags, and various stripes in shades of chocolate, red and ivory come together in a balanced asymmetry against a warm, neutral tan ground. A branch-like form emerges toward the center, letting us see that the vertical rods in the lower left are actually bamboo shoots, that zig-zags are pools of water, and that the whole composition is an ornamental Chinese landscape translated into a modernist geometric idiom. The warmth of the color is nicely complemented by the tactile, velvety quality of the wool.
